Nokia Asha 205 – 200 Internet, GPRS, EDGE and MMS Manual Settings

Nokia Asha 205 is a dual sim phone in 2G network only that means you only have a EDGE or GPRS connectivity on your network provider. It runs on S40 OS version and uses Nokia Xpress as a default browser in connecting to the internet. Pre loaded with applications and games like Asphalt, Green Farm, Midnight pool and many more. In this post, we are going to setup manual EDGE/GPRS/MMS configuration settings in connecting all your apps to the internet using your Nokia Asha 205.

Tips
To remove the ‘E’ or ‘G’ icon on your Nokia Asha 205 Home screen just set your ‘Mobile data connection’ to ‘When needed ‘instead of ‘Always online’. This will also save your battery power.

There is no edit option on your current and newly created access points, all you need to do is to create a new one instead of editing your existing access points.
